TEMPE - Fliers, let go of the pretzels and peanuts.

 

In what could be the ultimate cost-cutting move by airlines buffeted by sky-high fuel prices, US Airways Group says it will eliminate free snacks in coach class on all its domestic flights starting June 1.

 

US Airways also says it has matched last week's fare hikes by United Airlines, AMR Corp.'s American Airlines and Delta Air Lines Inc. The increases are from $10 to $60 per round trip and vary based on the length of the flight.

 

US Airways spokesman Morgan Durrant says the move to cut free snacks was needed to save money in a time of extremely high fuel costs. The airline is still providing complimentary soft drinks.

 

The price of jet fuel has soared this year as crude oil prices head into uncharted territory in the $130 per barrel range.

I personally don't see a problem with this at all. i mean, how many times have you gotten on a train or bus and they offered you free food and drinks?

 

plus their snacks are always so unhealthy and gross it is a total waste of money and calories!

You can always pack your own snacks. A lot of the time I will just buy a sandwich from subway or quiznos and eat it if I get hungry. Or just eat beforehand.

I'm just laughing, because I'm wondering what's next?

 

Someone recently sent me a skit (I think it was from SNL) that parodied airlines charging for everything now & this just reminds me of it. Like soon there will be a coin slot for the air conditioning vent above you......$1.00 for every 1/2 hour. cheesy.gif

What's next is that your own snacks will not be permitted and you'll have to pay $4 for the peanuts and $2 for the soda! Who knows what will happen if the economy doesn't turn around.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
